Welcome to week two of The Mayor’s own version of “FF”….the Friday Funny! With an internet full of Facers, Spacers, Tweeps, Squares, blog hops, #FF, Follow Friday, & Mr. Linky, the ever growing world of social media & the accompanying language can be difficult to navigate. So screw it….after four kids, I don’t have the brain cells left to retain it all, & after a typical week in Crazy Town, the bleeding eyeballs & ice pick jammed in my skull certainly don’t frikkin’ help. Thus, I have chosen to forge my own path….no surprise there, really, that’s just how I roll. The concept is simple….combine the underlying ideas of all the Friday tasks in to one, while making it something far more entertaining to participate in! Starting with Twitter, @ChrisBrogan recognized the #FollowFriday premise was getting out of hand, yet still a valuable tool for networking. He proposed turning #FF in to a blog post, & tweeting the link each week. In the world of blogging, there exists the same idea…Friday Follow blog hops. Again, more of a chore than anything…..unless we post & link up our Friday Funny of the week, enabling us to share some laughs along our blog hopping journey! So don’t delete that hilarious e-mail you got, & be sure to jot down the tweet that had you howling in laughter. Possibly it was a viral video that made you giggle, or even a horribly embarrassing, yet oh so amusing, personal story from your own life. Whatever it is that made your week a little more tolerable for the laughs it gave you, blog it, post it, throw in a few of your favourite tweeps along the way, & come on by Crazy Town to link it up & get the blog hop going…& imagine, instead of #FF 50 billion frikkin names on Twitter, you can just tweet your post link! SWEET!
Now that I’ve bored you to tears with the details, & you’re wondering where the hell your laughs are, I’d like to apologize to @MamaLibra for seemingly pilfering her funny video idea…& tell you to make sure to check out HER Friday Funny! But as I had imaginary margaritas with @MOMmagRocks while encouraging @specialsauceith & @mmdrama to Google that sh** & find something fun to share, The Dad brought me a video that really spoke to the posts I’ve done this week….including today’s! Slightly off colour, but if you HAVE been reading along with me, you’ll see why I found it so damn funny…right down to the big black hole capable of shooting humans out of it, & the crazy evolution of social networking….even my own Dad might notice a familiar little joke in here! So this is for all of you who *GASP* have your parents on your Facebook…much to my son’s dismay, that includes him….much to my dismay, it also includes ME….just kidding (they visit Crazy Town too, geez Louise!)
Gotta love these people who have nothing better to do with their time than entertain the masses with such fantastic, tongue-in-cheek videos. Admittedly though, social networking IS a marvellous thing. Just this week, I discovered another me, (God forbid, I know!), @trulytrayce, who has the same first AND last name…go figure! I then had a wonderful morning with two women who are also crazy enough to have four kids, @CocktailDeeva & @kellidaisy, then an afternoon commiserating with @DailyMomDiaries over her rainy weather out East while I enjoyed Canada’s warmest city of the day! @GingerSpiker & I discussed the benefits of various drugs to muddle through our mutual illness, & though pot & Tequila made the list, we settled on Dayquil. Last, but not least, I laughed my ass off at a hilarious parody of the craptastic reality show “The Hills“, sent to me by @momentsinmyhead. Hopefully as I progress with this concept, next week’s FF won’t be so convoluted & it will be a simple matter of posting both my favourite funny of the week, & my most enjoyable tweets/tweeps of the week, enabling me to mix up my #FF each time by covering those people that engaged or entertained me on Twitter. Any blogger I mention on a Friday will be mentioned by their Twitter name if they have one, & they can link up their blog below to have both forums covered….comments can also be used to include your Twitter name. With the details out of the way, those of you who don’t give a frik about other bloggers, or #FF or any other such nonsense, will be able to just come by & get your laugh….& maybe even find a few more through the links below!! Those of you who have decided to participate….ALL ABOARD THE CRAZY TRAIN!
